I have to check this out in English. This is one of those bizarre, is it so bad it's good, drug-induced incidental brilliance wacko Japanese creations. It cannot be taken seriously by any means, but it has an offbeat charm. I hope they didn't "fix" it for us Smile

From the same creator as Hanaukyo Maid-tai you say?

I'll have to check it out then.

Yet another hi-larious story in which a crossdressing guy goes to a all-girls school and wackiness ensues. Wait, let me guess - he'll be a more perfect "girl" than all the girls around him and there will be lots of groping gags (in which he will somehow magicall feel something through fake breasts) and girls louging around in lingerie.

Godamighty, can't someone come up with a different plot? This one has been done 14 million times already. I'm exhausted at the mere thought of another one.

Cheers,

Erica

Where did you read about the guy cross-dressing? I think you have this mistaken with some other anime...

Yeah, not. This is your standard ecchi harem, mixed with mecha, taken to full parody level, but difficult to tell if it's intentional or not--just pure wacky. It is NOT watched for a straight story. Watch the first episode, then you can decide. I consider it one of my cult classics, like a Roger Corman anime Smile Oh, and because I watched it subbed, when they said English I thought they meant dubbed. No, just officially subbed now.

Yeah, the article was a bit confusing. I though that Koi Koi Seven was going to be streamed with an English dub, but yes it is Japanese with English subtitles.

No worries, though, I did catch the first episode on Joost not too long ago. A lot of quirky situations and a heavy dose of fanservice, but otherwise not a bad episode. The characters seem plausible enough that I can probably enjoy it as long as they kept the fanservice to a minimum and don't go overboard with it. I'll check out the rest of the episodes at a later time.

Apologies for the misunderstanding - prettend to be a girl is the usual handwave that gets a guy into a girls school.

That he's just there is marginally less annoying. Still exhausting, though. lol

Been a while since I saw the show, but there was a brief instance of Tetsuro being disguised as "Tetsuko". Forgot about how they explain a boy openly attending an all-girls school.

The episode where they make an anime (shot on film using actual cels, no less) was pretty good.

Strawberry Eggs.

One of the most retarded anime series I've seen, I might add.

I love complaining about shows I don't watch! It makes me look intelligent when I can just dismiss any show because of my amazing ability to mind read what the staff where doing so I know whats happening before its animated.

Is the main character boring and just a retread of pretty much 75% of harem leads.? Yes, but you would only know that by watching it. The girls are fun, and the plot is simply so nonsensical that it works.

I mean if you read a blurb on Negima it doesn't sound much better, but Negima is also one of the best shonen mangas made in Japan today certainly better than anything Shonen Jump is vomiting out.

I went to Joost yesterday to see this even though, nine times out of ten, I can't get anything I want to watch there to run. It wouldn't run for me and I picked up a couple of trojans for my troubles.

Joost posts stuff from a lot of sleazy sources. Don't trust it and never let it download anything to your computer. I'm not going back there for anything.

It's an ecchi title, obvious from the first show. But IIRC ep 01 is one of the more blatant ones. There are a couple situations later that go a bit overboard, depending on your tastes, but those were particularly humorous to me.

I've watched my fair share of harems over the years and as long as the characters maintain their level of entertainment and don't act too corny I should pretty much enjoy this series. I did liked the first episode and most harems are character-driven shows in my view anyway.
